Default Antenna recommendations?

Team,
I am looking for an outdoor antenna I can mount full time on the top (or side) of my van. I am looking for one that doesn't require lowering or raising and that is omnidirectional.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Mark

What kind of antenna? TV? WiFi? 4G? FM?

Default Antenna

My used roadtrek came with the wingard mostly gone. I sawed down the mount and repurposed it as base for XM radio antenna. For tv, the prior owner hung one of those flat sheet antennas in the window near the tv and it usually gets 20-50 stations over the air. Also have option to make Wi-Fi hotspot on phone, and HDMI from computer to tv for sling, Netflix, etc. Honestly we use the tv very little.

I use the Winegard automatic. Very happy with it except when the gear drive fails. I'm on my third after two warranty replacements. Reception is very good. It rotates under a dome.

I had an in motion Winegard T4 (Roadie?) Installed because it got much better user reliability reviews that the automatic satelite versions of their antenna for fixed position use. It has worked great however if it were not for DirecTV's NFL Ticket we might not bother with satelite TV.
None of the over the air broadcast systems we have tried worked well out in the middle of no where so not a solution for our preferences.
The big antenna dome on our Roadtrek might impair stealth camping if you care about that.

For stealth Sat TV I use the KVH A9 after using an A5 for many years. The dome is hard to spot being only 5" high. Very expensive at $4-5k.
